Sarajevo commemorates anti-Nazi struggle with "Igman's March"


(MENAFN- Hip Hop-24) On Saturday, the Bosnians commemorated the 81st anniversary of the national liberation struggle waged by the former Federation of Yugoslavia against Nazism, by organizing the traditional "Igman March" on Mount Igman near the Bosnian capital, Sarajevo.

Thousands of people from different regions of Bosnia and Herzegovina and from neighboring countries participated in Igman's march, as they walked the path taken by the "First Proletariat Brigade" during the national liberation war of the former Yugoslavia during World War II.

At the end of the march, the participants laid a wreath in front of the "First Proletariat Brigade" monument in Mount Igman near the capital, Sarajevo, and raised the flags of the former Yugoslavia.

The event was organized by the Union of Anti-Fascist Associations and Veterans of the People's Liberation War of the Sarajevo Canton.

In his speech, the President of the Union indicated that 7,000 people applied to participate in the march.

It should be noted that units of the Nazi German army were able to besiege the Yugoslav First Proletariat Brigade, numbering 800 people, near the border with Romania in 1942.

The aforementioned brigade was able to break the siege by marching on the night of January 27-28, 1942, through Mount Igman near Sarajevo, despite the heavy snow and low temperatures of 38 degrees below zero, until it reached the city of Foca, which was not occupied by the Nazis at that time.
